Out of the Blue

Out of 36 links non-gaming links, 9 were HuffPo. I'd say 25% of content coming from one source is quite high.

I will try and be more conscious of too many stories coming from a single source, though I should add your analysis of this is a little deceptive, as 55% of those HuffPo links you cite are actually Associated Press articles that happen to be posted there, and could have come from any of hundreds of sites that carry that wire feed. That is simply because these links typically come from submissions.

Two ways to change the makeup of these links are to submit articles from other sources, which you are encouraged to do, or demonstrate some problem with the site to which we are linking. There was a comment that "90% of the stories there are either celebrity gossip or pseudo-science homeopathic medicine articles*," but that doesn't describe any of the articles in question, which are all on topic for the various categories where they are filed. And as always, these are arranged in easily skippable bullet point format so you can avoid inflammatory content such as "Twitterers React To Facebook's New Features" and "Next Generation 'iPhone 5' Teased In WSJ Report: What Will It Look Like?"

* A recent "science" article there drew some valid criticism here, and such stories will not likely be linked from here in the future.
